My tonsils have so many crevices in them and I have been getting reoccurring tonsil stones, I also have post nasal drip. Are tonsil stones contagious?
Recently had several tonsil stones and swollen tonsils. Is tonsillectomy recommended for 29 y/o with these symptoms, or is that not necessary?

Enlarged turbinates, tonsils enlarged with daily tonsil stones over 1+ years cont. What's some of the common causes for both to occur at same time?
Not typically: Tonsil stones, or tonsilliths, are concretions of saliva, food debris, and often actinomycetes which are sulfur-producing organisms.
